    It'll knock you on you ass from laughing when you're not rubbing your eyes in disbelief. show more

    The result is an original picture, not entirely successful, but successful enough, and delightful in its ability to surprise viewers, and juggle tones and keep every ball in the air. The World's End has the aura - and this might only be an attractive illusion - of something imagined whole, in a burst of inspiration, rather than as something labored over. show more

    The premise of visiting so many pubs as a narrative device, however, bogs down the initially energetic pacing and goofiness. Piling on the mayhem renders The World's End a sometimes chaotic and uneven comedy. show more

    The World's End stands on its own as hilarious high-end nonsense. show more

    Smart, funny, and gross (often at the same time). show more

    Some inner logic may not hold up under the sober light of day, but this unusual action-comedy has the loosey-goosey feel of something that can’t miss, like a soused round of bar pool. The final triumph: In a summer full of capes and masks, beer-bellied Frost tears off his shirt à la the Hulk. It’s this season’s best superhero moment. show more

    While things get a tad buckled town in mayhem and special effects throughout the film’s busy final reels, Wright spends enough time sketching out his mischievous middle-aged men so that their journey...feels worthwhile and even meaningful for a few of them. show more

    There is something weird about the twins, something that will fuel a bar room brawl until it goes quite literally global, that will let director Wright take a leap into another genre entirely and that will allow The World's End to spin into ever grander comic mayhem, even as it becomes a surprisingly effecting look at the folly of trying to recapture one's youth. show more

    A knowing take on movies and maturity alike, The World’s End is just as thoroughly thoughtful as those which came before it, and maybe more than ever, you’ll find yourself laughing to keep from crying. show more

    The World’s End isn’t perfect – – but its best moments leave the bulk of recent American “event movies” gasping in the dust. show more

    If you\'re too stupid to understand British humor, then don\'******* this. You wont be able to keep up with their quick words. For comedies today, its extremely difficult for it to get anything above 3 stars. That\'s because all the humor is meant for retards to understand.. I loved the concept & style

    Seriously? No... just no, so horrible I choose to watch grass grow instead.

    Not funny. Didn\'t laugh once and didn\'t hear any laughter coming from the other half dozen people in the theater. Not funny. One more time...not funny. I have no idea what the critics saw, but then again they also loved Blue Jasmine. And I have to say, as a staunch WA fan, it sucked.

    Pretty lame start and lousy first half of the movie. Then, the blue blood started to spew and I thought it might get better. Alas, it really did not. I would say see it when it comes out on HBO, but only if you really have nothing better to do...

    I loved the first two in the trilogy, but this one is not my cup of tea. It starts out funny, but goes in the wrong direction at the end.

    If you are over the age of 12, skip it.

    Funny, funny movie. Not as good as the other two (Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead) but worthwhile. I thought the beginning was a bit long and the sermon near the end was a bit much but all-in-all funny movie. Nick Frost is the STAR!!!
